The CEATA Training Academy provides training courses for ambitious people with an interest in the engineering industry; specifically in welding and metalwork fabrication.
While working in a real engineering factory and utilising state of the art equipment, expert training is provided in a safe and controlled environment at all times.
Successful completion of an accredited training course will provide a person with a Nationally recognised qualification, which is accepted by respectable employers throughout the UK.
More Than Your Local College
The CEATA Training Academy is not a college and consequently works the same business weeks throughout the year as the leading engineering companies.
